First a few pics taken from our campground on the river:
|This view of the sunrise mist on the river REALLY reminds me of Clam Pudding Pond. A little homesick, I guess.|
These were shot from the overlook on the north side of the Klamath mouth looking south:
Next stop was the overlook on the south side of the mouth looking north. The rock in the first picture below is the same one as in the picture above from the other overlook.
We also explored a really interesting site shown in the picture below. This concrete block building was built during WWII to look like a farmhouse but it was actually a radar and lookout station on the alert for a Japanese attack! Now it is primarily occupied by banana slugs.
|This little guy is the mascot of my alma mater, UC Santa Cruz.|
Sunset and moonset at the beach at the mouth of the Klamath. The haystack rocks you see are very common on this coast.
|This building is a traditional Yurok sweat lodge, still in use by the locals.|
|Not photoshopped (I don't have or know how to use Photoshop), this is actually Lynnae's hand in the picture.|
